How much time do you spend managing poor performers?

Most managers find they spend 80 percent of their “people” management time on 20% of their employees – and you know who those “20%” are – “problem” employees.

In fact, instead of coaching and developing those employees who are ready to take on more responsibility, you spend your time getting those few employees to perform at a “barely meets job expectations” level or correcting their “unacceptable behavior.”

So, what’s a manager to do? The answer is to implement a progressive discipline system.

With the new and exclusive Progressive Discipline guide, you’ll get step by step guidance to change unacceptable employee behavior and improve performance.
